Question Islander 32" bad strut

Dear fellow quality boat owners,

I've got a 1979 32" Islander Mark 2 and the strut is disintigrating. If any one knows where a replacement can be found, please let me know. I'm afraid one will have to be fabricated, but it would be nice if they can still be purchased.

Thank you for your knowledge,

Islander Strut

Islander Tim,
I had problems with my Islander 28 strut and contacted Robert Perry (Who actually replied to me!).
The original manufacturer of the struts was a company called Buck Algonquin Marine, who are still in business and have a web site.
On your existing strut there should be a number stampted on it. If you have that, Buck Algonquin can match that to an existing strut.
If not, give them the dimensions of your strut , including the shaft diameter and they should be able to find a match.
Hope this helps- Good LucK!
